• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

SIne I haven't gotten to the point of building my fuse, nor have I looked into it, I have a question that may seem silly to some.

I just built my rudder pedals...should I powercoat them before I install them, or wait until I have the entire fuse ready and the pedals will just get done after they are installed?

Also, should I install a grease fitting on the pedal shafts for smooth operation? Where else will I need to put grease fittings?
